Quantum Network-Entanglement: Detection, Measures and Applications
Dr. Zhen-Peng Xu
Anhui University

Quantum networks open a new approach to investigate quantum correlations unveiling novel structures of entanglement known as quantum network-entanglement. Interestingly, the resource theory underlying quantum network-entanglement diverges significantly from that of traditional multipartite entanglement, where Local Operations and Classical Communication (LOCC) are free. Instead, LOCC operations become the primary resource in the context of quantum network-entanglement. In this talk, I will provide a succinct overview of our latest advancements in this burgeoning field. This encompasses the development of criteria for distinguishing graph states and symmetric states from network states, essential for understanding the intricate nature of quantum entanglement within network structures. Additionally, I will delve into the characterization of quantum networks within the noisy intermediate-scale quantum era, elucidating the challenges and opportunities in harnessing entanglement amidst practical imperfections. Furthermore, I will discuss measures tailored specifically for quantifying quantum network-entanglement, shedding light on its intrinsic properties and enabling its utilization in various quantum network tasks, such as metrology.
